Just some background:
A fad or trend is any form of
collective behavior that develops within a culture, a generation or social
group in which a group of people enthusiastically follow an impulse for a short
period of time.
Now remember I have
been around a long time so I remember a FEW fads. I was NOT in the roaring 20s
but I was a teen in what some call the fabulous 50s. The first Fad I remember
was ‘pegged pants’. If you could afford them they were available by design, but we Boys would improvise and sorta fold their jeans over and roll
them up a roll.
The next was the
thin belts with the pants lower than normal and it was called ‘Snake Hips’. Now
don’t confuse that with the one a few years back that was called jailin’ or pants on the ground.
Then the Flat Top hair
cut caught on for a few years.
But for sure the one that held on the longest was the ‘Duck’s Tail’
I don’t remember too many girl’s fads except ‘Bobby Socks’ and the Pony Tail.
Oh yes, my girl just mentioned Crinolines, yep I definitely remember them! They sure spread Sherry's dress out!
Give us some you
